PowerXtreme PPC9AClick to Zoom

The 6U VME SBC PPC9A's processor node features Freescale’s Power Architecture 8641D dual core integrated processor supported by up to 4 GB DDR2 SDRAM and 1 GB Flash memory. The processor node is coupled to an extensive PCI Express architecture, offering significantly higher data bandwidth than previously possible - making the PPC9A a high performance computing PowerXtreme SBC. The PPC9A provides a number of high speed interfaces for off-board communication, including two Gigabit Ethernet ports, two USB 2.0 ports and two Serial ATA disk interfaces. In addition, there is support for legacy interfaces, including 6 serial ports, and sixteen general purpose I/O lines to provide seemless technology upgrade to high performance computing applications.
